    Bought a refurbished gen1 engine for my 2011 Yamaha R125 from gobikes125. Battled through a small problem with delivery, which was the fault of UPS and the harsh snow spell we had. More than made up for with the quality of the engine, and amazing support provided over text/phone saving us and helping us to install and adjust the engine. Overall great service and a standout business ran by Sylvia and Raymond.

    Highly recommend.

    Still running good? I`ve ordered one myself and it should be here soon. How did you do the service intervals? Do you do it at a Yamaha dealer or yourself? How many miles did you run it in on?

    I guess I can give a "fresh" review on gobikes125.
    They are absolutely great. SUPERB service, cheap shipping, good packing and securing the engine before shipment. Engine runs perfect, it also has to be ridden in for 1000km since it has new barrel, piston etc that needs to be run in. Sylvia is still in charge of paperwork, mails etc. Good service! No wonder why they have ZERO Neutral or Negative reviews on Ebay. all 4746 reviews are 100% positive.

    Here is a REAL 2020 UPDATED REVIEW.

    I messaged Sylvia via eBay. No reply so seen her number. I text her. A day later she rang my phone. She sounded very genuine and seemed to know what she was talking about. At first I was hesitant to place the order as it didn’t seem right to send my engine in return for another and to pay £450. Anyway so a day later I placed an order. “ on 03/07/20 “ as soon as she got the money, replies got more distant. I got told her Internet was striked out by bad weather. In Devon? Ok. Seemed a little strange to me! Again. No replies from her. The next time she replied to me the reason was all her 12 children came to visit her house. Anyway. I get a phone call finally on 7/7/20 my engine will be posted out 8/7/20 or 8/7/20. Brilliant I thought. I was relieved thinking I haven’t been scammed. Now it’s 8/7/20 at 22:15. I’ve had no reply again. I’m giving up. I belive I have been scammed and this has been a horrible experience.. I will contact my bank for fraud, ( she’s with Santander) “ go bikes “ so hopefully I can get myself a refund and her account closed. I wish I had placed the order via eBay maybe I would have had a differsnt experince with them. But I seems because I went to her personally she is taking the p**s. Will update if anything changes.

    yikes, that's a shame to hear. I was toying with the idea of getting a motor from there as the best possible tuning starting point but maybe better doing the rebuild myself.

    So are you still without a working bike?
